Louisiana folk instrument: spoons

Louisiana folk instrument: spoons
Originally uploaded by trudeau.
If you're listening to a Cajun or zydeco jam, what better improvisation could there be than using spoons
as percussion? Louisiana has always been a materially poor state. Traditionally there weren't a lot of nice drums around. We picked up whatever was handy and made a rhythmic noise. That includes scrub boards, metal triangles and sticks. Let's jam to that inimitable bayou beat!
